GeChic On-Lap 1305H Portable Monitor Review

Rating: 7.0.

If you miss the benefits of your multi-monitor desktop when travelling, then a portable monitor could be the perfect companion to your laptop. With a variety of products available designed to offer similar functionality and a high level of portability, GeChic brings the On-Lap 1305H monitor to the table. The panel itself looks very good on paper, but the connectivity does appear to be quite basic thanks to the standard HDMI and USB connectors. With most modern laptops leaning toward the USB Type-C/Thunderbolt interface, has the On-Lap 1305H arrived too late or does it still hold some promise for daily usability?

KitGuru says: At the end of the day, the GeChic On-Lap 1305H does what a lot of portable monitors do – it acts as a second screen for your laptop. But where it differs is in its seemingly archaic connections, when compared to other USB Type-C monitors available today. The standard USB and full-size HDMI connectors might seem clunky, but they allow you to use the On-Lap 1305H with a range of different devices.
